*The industry has no standards for measuring or publishing results and many published specs wildly overstate the headphone's potential. We prefer not to play the "spec game" for this reason.
The LCD-3 and Ether Flow's are both fantastic headphones and the most directly comparable in my collection. The LCD-3 has a bit of a more musical presentation that just feels a bit more "analog" that I like. That being said, they are like putting a helmet on and just aren't suitable for long listening sessions. My ears and head literally hurt when I pull them off after a couple hours.
The Ether Flow while maybe a tiny bit less "musical" are more exacting in detail. I feel like I can make minor changes to the sound signature to by switching between my Mytek over to my Woo Audio tube amp to get a little more laid back sound. The Ether 2 wins hands down in design, feel, weight, and comfort department and that alone makes it enough for me to love them more than the LCD-3.
I still like having all my headphones, but the Ether 2 is my favorite right now. I use it often and more readily find myself lost in the music because I don't have a tank on my head. :)
